I bought these to use in pressure treated softwood shed bearers. I have been drilling pilot holes and out of approx 12-15 attempts 5 have either sheared or buckled completely. you could actually see the long 6mm screws twisting as I attempted to drive them in. I am taking the 4 boxes of different sizes back for a refund and will use the standard coated turbo ultra screws instead which I have not had any problems with.

These screws are excellent value.i used them to screw into solid oak with no problems. I will now take the rest to use on a beach hut exposed to the winter storms.

Using these screws to hold railway sleepers together and so far have to say they do the job well. No pre drilling needed and pull wood together really well.

I can't say that these Stainless Steel screws are rubbish because when they work they are excellent, but I have spent literally hours trying to extract them for whatever reason because the cross slot just so often burrs away when driving them in with a power screwdriver. The metal is phenomenally soft and the cross slots in the smaller screws invariably strip. I really wish Screwfix could supply the same screw but made from a much harder metal . I never get this problem with the Turbogold screws.
